Upgrade heavy and light forwarders

To upgrade a heavy or light forwarder, upgrade the Splunk instance that supports it. There are no specific or additional instructions when you perform an upgrade on a heavy or light forwarder beyond confirming that forwarding continues to work after the upgrade.

See How to upgrade Splunk Enterprise in the Installation Manual for installation instructions.
